Swisstopo is Switzerland’s national cartography agency, providing customers with both physical and digital maps, many of which are also available to mobile phones with a GPS.

Hanspeter Christ, Deputy Head of the Federal Spatial Data Infrastructure (FSDI) within Swisstopo explains the benefits of Puppet:
